We heat the facilities with wood residues
Antarte is innovative in Sustainability.
We use sawdust and wood shavings to heat our manufacturing facilities.
|The production lines at Antarte's manufacturing units generate wood waste.
|Wood residues are sucked up by systems placed next to each machine, preventing them from accumulating on the floor.
|After being vacuumed, the waste goes through ducts placed next to the factory roof, to a collector outside.
|From the collector they are placed in a boiler, where combustion takes place to produce heat that is sent through ducts into the factory and used for two purposes.
|1st Purpose: Used for drying materials in greenhouses, saving energy consumption for this purpose.
|2nd Purpose: To heat the manufacturing facilities, maintaining a pleasant temperature in the coldest seasons to improve the comfort of employees, without consuming additional energy.
